5. Will participants be allowed some warm-up practice on d obstacles on d day itself?
>> No.


just a little bit surprise.. hope puppy forum will consider allow some warm up during the trial.

Wink My sentiments exactly. Again, can understand d strict rules if agility is already an established sport in Msia n v r running at intermediate or advanced levels.

But d sport is still in its infant stages n most agility folks here arent as fortunate 2 hv deir own equipt 2 constantly train with, particularly d contact obstacles. Even in Western nations, warm up runs r sometimes still seen in novice class trials. At d minimum, dogs r usually allowed 2 try out d contact obstacles coz dese obstacles cn vary quite significantly from 1 club to another.

Dis is only d 1st agility trial n informal participation shld b encouraged. No point in making it so strict n rule based only 2 find dogs struggling 2 complete d course. Allowing practice runs on certain obstacles will go a long way in making d trial n sport accessible 2 all. Just a short 2 minute session for all wld b sufficient.

D basic rule of doing agilityis dat it shld b fun 4 both handler n dog ... n trials shld b an extension of dat.
